Welcome to Day Fourteen!
If you’re wondering why I choose to do some photos in black and white and others in color…it’s usually because I can’t get the colors to print out right on my printer (or appear decent on my screen). Often those are the ones taken in the lowest light. This one here was taken early in the morning as the kids played while waiting for Simon’s school bus.
Along the bottom is word art from my new Christmas Quotes Vol.1 package at Designer Digitals. Along the top is a bit of paper I cut from a mail solicitation.
We tend to get all kinds of interesting and cool mail this time of year.
Many of the charity solicitations have great designs – this one here is from Holt International (which happens to be based here in Eugene). The other image I photographed was an envelope for a wedding invitation for my cousin Walker. Both made it onto page two today.
I blurred out our home address. I like including something that includes our address (this is our first Christmas in this house).
I collaged together a bit from the Holt piece, part of the wedding invitation that includes all of our names and our address, an image of some wreaths from a catalog, and a chipboard accent from K&Company. Red machine stitching holds it all together.
Along the bottom I typed in my journaling. Nothing complicated – just a few simple thoughts for the day.
